Due to the limestone that runs throughout the Yorkshire Dales, we have extensive cave systems across the area, making it one of the major areas for caving in the UK. However if you fancy staying above ground then a visit to one or two of the three highest peaks in Yorkshire is a wonderful day out. Starting in Ingleton this walk takes you up Ingleborough the highest flat top mountian in Europe at 723m. You’ll see some excellent examples of the surface limestone pavement with its “clints” (the limestone blocks) and “grikes” (the fissures between). The views from Ingleborough are superb, stretching as far as the west coast and the Lake District, and it is worth walking the short distance to the northern edge of the plateau for a fine view of the famous Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle Carlisle railway line.
One thing to bear in mind is that Ingleborough can have a cap of cloud. This can appear without warning on an initially clear day. The top of Ingleborough is a strangely disorientating place in cloud/mist. If the cloud does descend, there is a marked drop in temperature, so be prepared! Then depending on the group and the day a option to walk Whernside at 728m is the tallest of the three Yorkshire peaks, with it’s tarns at the higher levels and at the start it gives you the chance to get up close and personal to that masterpiece of Victorian engineering, the Ribblehead railway viaduct. Plus the views from the summit are also magnificent.
The primary aim of this is to experience night navigating. Therefore the start time will vary throughout the year and will be confirmed during the pre-course communications so this is a typical course.
Meet in the centre of Ingleton (unless otherwise informed), have a brew while your instructor outlines the skills you will use and go over the route for the evening. Our location in the yorkshire dales means we never need to travel far to find a suitable location.
Start Navigating – You will get a couple of hours of walking in before the sun goes down, to ensure we practise a range of skills and identify areas for improvement as we move into more challenging terrain. Once it gets dark expect to use a range of compass and contour feature techniques as we work on the strategies that will allow you to navigate effectively in conditions of poor visibility. Don’t worry as at all times your instructor will be on hand to provide advice and reassurance as your confidence in your own ability increases. Eventually your route will take you back down off the hill and back to the start.
Debrief back to the village and a local establishment, for a well earned refreshment, chat, relax and review the evening
